I haven't been posting much because LJ isn't allowed on USG computers (thought Facebook is!) and I really don't have much to post about. I've been working a lot, and in the evenings I feel so exhausted that I just Bengali lentil soup from room service and just conk out.

Last night my counterpart at the research institute invited me over for Nepali food. She told me that our colleague who's coming from Manila is having a hard time getting a visa because there are so many Filipinos here in managerial positions. I did hear Tagalog this morning while waiting for the embassy mini-van though I didn't see the girl group that performs every evening.

Perhaps part of my listlessness (apart from the oppressive heat and humidity) is due to jet lag exacerbated by the necessity of working and communicating in EST. Early mornings, late nights for conference calls, and I still listen to the NPR station live.

I've ignored this account way too long. I miss my LJ friends and news about their lives. Your post took me away from the daily grind, if only for a little while. :)
